Ah, here it is. The first blog post of the page. Well, that’s not technically true. I actually had four or five posts from back in July that I deleted prior to this one. They were too vague and angsty. Angsty isn’t a word but it’s how the posts came across. The last thing I want to be is whiny.
I’ve been thinking about blogging for years now. What better way to relieve the itch to write than by blogging? Every attempt I’ve made so far ends up sounding like a damn diary entry. All of the articles I’ve read about getting started with blogging (and there are entirely too many) tell you that you should start out by picking your topic, or your niche. Find your voice and your audience and stick to it. Awesome. Thanks for the advice. I wasn’t able to find a single article about HOW to find your voice. How do I narrow down what I want to say when I want to say everything?
The way I figure it, a blog is somewhat organic, it's going to start out as one thing but could morph into something else. I’ve already decided what I’ll write about, pop culture, geek/nerd stuff, books, etc. I’ll start there and see where it goes.
This blog isn’t meant to be a companion to the CTRL+C podcast, but you shouldn’t be surprised if I talk about it from time to time.
I guess that’s it for round one. Round two will be on its way soon.
